Pesto Genovese

August 28, 2018 / by Junko

I harvested basil from my garden (balcony)!
I love basil leaves but it is always difficult to use them up and I’m threatened when they go to seed any minute by the end of August. I’ve tried dry basil, basil salt, frozen basil and etc., but I always end up with making basil pesto.

Pasta genovese with fresh basil pesto… Italians are geniuses!

There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :)

Seeking the best balance of being free and living a stable life in this busy city, I enjoy kitchen gardening to deepen my connection with nature. Lately, I enjoy traveling to places I’ve never been and dancing Salsa/Kizomba there. Always a traveler at heart. Freelance web/graphic designer. Coffee & chocolate addict.
